Talks in Normandy format may be revived in the near future. This was stated by President Petro Poroshenko at the meeting with heads of Ukrainian embassies, the correspondent ЛІГА.net.
“My talks with the leaders of France and Germany give reason to hope that in the near future Normandy format will be resuscitated. You need to defend the preservation and strengthening of sanctions against Russia until the complete cessation of aggression”, – said the President.
Poroshenko also expressed hope that the Western partners of Ukraine are aware of the counterproductive and the danger of talk about easing or lifting of sanctions against Russia. “Flirting with someone who disregards international law is not a threat to Ukraine, is a threat to world security,” he said.
August 23 French President Francois Hollande expressed support of the Normandy format and expressed hope for a new meeting in this format.
